However, they had a great night! Honestly, I didn't see nor hear them unless they were wanting to eat.
We headed to the mall this morning .. all with cell phones, digital cameras and Coach purses in hand (apparently the 3 staples of being a 14-year old girl). I had my cell phone and Michael Kors purse, but didn't get the memo about cameras!
We got to the mall, and they split, and I got to walk around and shop BY MYSELF for the first time in my life! I would catch myself rushing through a clearance rack and have to stop myself! I had all the time in the world!
The girls called me after two hours and invited me to eat lunch with them. It was then that she showed me what they had been doing for two hours ... trying on formals for the 8th grade winter formal. They had pictures to prove it. Kyndal had realized last night that her favorite formal was too short, so she needed another one. I told her I would pitch in $50 (we're a budget family) toward her ensemble. And, off they went again.
Another hour or so later I received "the call" that she had found "the dress". And, it was $50. We met up, I took the dress to pay for it (after I hunted down the perfect pair of new dark jeans for me), and they were off again ...
this time to look for Converse shoes to wear with their dresses .. YES, Converses!!
She found the pair she liked, but they didn't have them in her size. Now we are on the hunt for the perfect pair. Apparently it's the thing to do this season!
After yet another hour of shopping with me .. because she was actually supposed to be at the mall buying much-needed clothes .. we walked out with three large bags of new clothes .. and the perfect black dress ...
As Demi Lovato would put it, "Who says I can't wear Converses with my dress?" Yeah, who says?
I believe these are the ones she wants
(Oh, and by the way, the dress ended up only being $33.99 !!! Yea !!)
